Three domestic workers were found dead in separate incidents across Lebanon over the past 24 hours.The Labor Ministry also revealed Monday the case of another Bengali domestic worker who fled her employer's house because she has not been paid since she started working for the man five years ago.Labor Minister Sejaan Azzi tasked an inspection team with following up on the case of the women, according to a statement issued by his office. After examining the worker's case, investigators determined that the woman is only 17 years old, meaning that she was only 12 when she first arrived in Lebanon and commenced her employment.
